After reading from Acts 17:16-27, Rev. Dr. Ken Henry gives us a taste of the Areopagus in Athens. This is where Paul spoke to the elite intellectuals of Athens who had a hunger for a new God and a new way to believe. Henry turns his focus to the 17 - 30 year old group of people today who are similarly hungry to talk about God. He says it's time for Christian voices to enter into the market place of ideas. Liturgist Meredith Wright reads from Isaiah 40:21-31.

In Gal. 3:23-29 When Paul addressed the church in Galatia, he addressed the possibility of some followers of Christ treating other followers of Christ as second class Christians. In his sermon, Rev. Dr. Ken Henry reflects on this and "Prayer of the Children" by Kurt Bestor. Looking at the results of the recent election, Henry asks, "Do our polarized stands get in the way of our cooperating.

In Mark 7, Jesus calls the Pharisees hypocrites for their finding fault with the disciples eating with unwashed hands. Rev. Dr. Ken Henry uses this and other passages from Mark 7 to show how Jesus' ministry is against anything that excludes others and puts people to shame. Using the analogy of Jesus as the bread of life, Rev. Henry emphasizes that everyone is welcome to the bread, and there is no place for shame. Liturgist Alice Thorn reads from Jeremiah 31:31-34.

What does it mean when tears come? Sometimes when tears come gushing out, we have no idea why. St. Augustine believed that tears indicated a change. As he weeps with Martha and Mary over Lazarus' Jesus realizes that he is alone in his understanding and the path he is to take. Liturgist Cindy Roberts reads from Matthew 21:1-11.

Exploring Psalm 72, Rev. Dr. Ken Henry asks, "How do we assess the leadership of Kings or Presidents?" Should the church or the clergy speak about politics? Psalm 72 reminds us that a king or president should speak up when things are unfair. Yet, speaking up comes at great risk. Those who dare to lead need our prayers.
